Noises from?

So i just returned to civilization, from Alaska to Hawaii, and now Ive noticed that my car makes a rattle or similar noise. I'm thinking its either shocks, struts, or possibly engine mounts. but before i tear into the car i was wondering if anyone else has had these sounds/problems. also the balt i own is an 07' ss/na, only owner of the car from 1st mile put on the car. also still waiting on my house to be ready but have access to a garage with limited tools.

When is this noise occurring, breaking, cornering, acceleration, traveling over bumps?? Please be more specific so that we can help you better with your problem.

I have that going on when I hit bumps too in my LT. I was told it could be bad struts (or shocks) by someone. Its done that since I bought it from the dealer (at around 36k) so I haven't been too concerned about it. I figure once I get a real job or some extra cash I will look into upgrading the suspension. I don't know how much that helps. Maybe someone's advice may help us both.

It would be the strut tower bushings. But it is wise to change the strut itself while you are at it too.

sounds good, i will def check out replacing the strut, it happens whenever i hit bumps, accelerate, corner. when i get a chance i will let you know if that fixed the problem. not a major one, just an annoying one.
